Procedures Performed

Dr. Mendoza says..

I have been in the practice of adult spinal reconstruction and deformity correction for the past 12 years. My experience includes the treatment of various forms of scoliosis, kyphosis and spondylolisthesis, as well as the treatment of spinal tumors, spinal infections and multiple degenerative conditions related to disc degeneration, spinal stenosis of the lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine.

Our program focuses on patient safety and optimizing clinical outcomes. The preparatory stages of surgery are fundamental, and extremely relevant in the recovery process. Our inter-disciplinary care teams are key to minimizing risks and improving outcomes. Your experience is our number one priority.

Dr. Mendoza's Care Philosophy

As co-director of Duke Spine Center, the goal of my practice is to treat patients with an interdisciplinary, evidence-based model. This includes a shared-decision-making process, team based care and continuous clinical outcomes collection. Educating and giving my patients access to information is a central piece of my approach. My philosophy is that the better educated patients are on their conditions, the better healthcare choices they are able to make. In the event that a patient needs surgery, we focus on optimizing and preparing prior to surgery with the purpose of improving outcomes. Complex spinal problems are better treated in an interdisciplinary, or team based, care environment. These collaborations are built into the Duke Spine Center and allow us to provide the best care and outcomes to patients with spine problems.
